In setting up a home preschool or kindergarten, many parents wonder about the kinds of resources they should have. Answers are many and varied, as one house may have different living situations and needs, differing learning styles and preferences, as well as different resources available to them.

In this tutorial, I’ll decribed most of the commanly used operators in C. There are 2 types of operators: logical and arithematic. Logical operations produce a value of true or false. Arithematic operations return a calculated value.

One of the problems programmers face is dealing with a large number of the same datatype. An example of this is this web page. If you view the page source you will see that behind the scenes a web page is a bunch of text. In talking about datatypes, I introduced the char datatype which holds 1 character. But this page consists of a few thousand characters. As a programmer, you would not want to have to create a variable for each character in the page. Programming would be a horribly inefficient means of processing a web page.

This is the first of 2 posts on conditions and iterations. Essentially this means conditional execution and repetitive operations. Using arrays and a variable to index into the array we can process an entire array without writing code which specifically accesses each element in the array.

On one of the few times I caught Dr Phil, he had a family who (naturally) was out of control and a father who was not connecting. Turns out they were homeschooling too, and Dr Phil told them to stop it right away so they could get their family on track. Continue reading “The hard parts of homeschooling”
There’s a new poll up over on the sidebar (since removed). Vote for whether or not you would (assuming you could) vote for the proposed American Federal act known as “Home School Non-Discrimination Act of 2005”
This is part 2 of 2 tutorials on conditions and iterations. Essentially this means conditional execution and repetitive operations. Using arrays and a variable to index into the array we can process an entire array without writing code which specifically accesses each element in the array.

Homeschooling your baby or toddler is easier than it sounds, and you don’t need fancy or expensive curriculum. It just means
doing those things that you would normally be doing with them anyway,
except in a concientious manner.
Here’s some ideas to incorporate into your daily adventures with your little one.
In this code sample, I’ve placed lots of comments. To see how well I’ve done at commenting, I’ll leave it to you to ask any questions in the forums. Continue reading “datatypes & comments example”
In the The Traditional First Program I talked about the main() function returning an integer to the operating system. int is a datatype. In C, there are a few basic datatypes. Before I talk about those, I’ll explain a bit about computers and memory.
